Hello friends! It's Jen today and I have a question for you---have you got all your valentines made? You know I haven't. Aren't you glad this January release has such fun digis for instant download for all your last minute valentine needs? I'm a big fan of this cute penguin from the Got Love Digistamp. I actually have the retired clear stamp version and used that for the above card. I felt guilty printing it when I could stamp it. So I stamped him out and cut him with my ScanNCut. I realized recently that I have too many leftover backgrounds and I can't close my background drawer. So I went digging for a fun background. This one that I grabbed was just made from cleaning some gold paint off my brayer. I love the shine.
But it needed some glitter and it needed some hearts. So I used the hearts from the Scripted Sentiments Digistamp, cut them out of glitter heat transfer vinyl, and pressed them onto my background. Sure is a fun and clean way to add glitter. I thought those looked like some big balloons for such a little penguin, so I drew a sort of shadow to make it look like he is floating a bit off the ground and put an action wobble underneath the balloons.
Even though I couldn't help using my old Got Love clear stamp, I also couldn't resist playing around with the actual Digistamp. I just love how a digi can take on any size. It brings so much more life to this set that I've been enjoying for so long.
I enjoy making clean and simple one layer cards by printing the digi really large and just coloring. This was a really quick and fun card to make with one of the Scripted Sentiments and of course some glitter. I added a whimsical hand-drawn frame and colored it gold to really make it pop. And now I am two valentines closer to my goal.
Here are the products I used today:
